The Jazz Notes 19 August 2017

Hello Jazz Lovers.

That was a great turn out for Galapagos Duck, so thanks to all of you who attended, we were all thoroughly entertained. (As usual).

This month’s gig has moved just a week later Friday 1st of September – Dan Bolton is a pianist, vocalist and song writer who has been performing in New York and is now touring Australia. Dan will make his way here via Brisbane Jazz Club & a Nambour Jazz gig: Listen out for Chrissy’s interview with him on Friday 1st September. He has released 5 CD’s so far and we will have one for air play on That’s Jazz!

Our AGM will be held in a month or so (TBA) and I already have someone put their hand up to join the committee. We always welcome new members on board so if you think you have something to offer let’s know. New ideas always welcome.

Due to our popularity, we already have bookings for January and February next year and I have also been approached for a March gig. The musicians know they get a great welcome in Hervey Bay from an appreciative audience, so well done to you!

Make sure you bring a little extra cash, we’ll have some more CD’s and books for sale.

As always you can send us an email at herveybayjazz@gmail.com or check out the website herveybayjazzclub.org.au

Keep swinging

David Mills


Dan Bolton
(Standards / Vocal Jazz)
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 1st (only 1 week later than usual…)



From Cairns via New York City and now Melbourne, Dan Bolton is a jazz singer/songwriter/pianist
with a unique sound. His songs are 21st Century standards, incorporating elements of jazz, pop
and Latin American styles. His music is reminiscent of George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving
Berlin but with a modern twist.

Back by popular demand, Dan will be performing with John Stefulj (woodwinds) and also featuring
members of Galapagos Duck, Rodney Ford on drums and John Conley on drums.

'Dan Bolton is a world-class songwriter and performer. I am especially impressed with his prolific
song-writing ability; being able to capture the listener with great storytelling and sense of melody.
It has been my absolute pleasure to work with him and record his music.' - Adrian Cunningham
(New York City based sax player)

'Dan Bolton is slick, quick and ready to deliver a world class performance of his swinging straight
ahead jazz tunes every time. People love his relaxed manner and humorous patter and his show
appeals both to jazz lovers and non-jazz lovers alike.' - Roger Manins (New Zealand's Premier Sax
Player)
